These are some of the attempts at verse that I have made over the years. I trust that they are to the glory of the Lord Jesus - and that putting them here is to His glory too.
I have now posted most that I have written at least once but continue in case a new audience finds new blessing. Occasionally I throw in some other verse.
Comment are welcome.
Peace is preached by Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all things) For His sacrifice sufficed For both great and small things; Jesus Christ remains the Same, Then, and now, and always; We have blessing in His Name In both great and small ways.
Jesus Christ the Righteous One Is propitiation; Jesus Christ God's only Son Brought our souls salvation; Jesus Christ the crucified Saved us by His dying: Once for all our Saviour died, For our sanctifying.
In this world where sin and pain Makes things seem disjointed, Jesus Christ will come to reign As the Man Anointed: Good and vile with one accord Will pronounce the story: Jesus Christ alone is Lord To the Father's glory.
We give Thee praise, our Great High Priest, Jesus the Son of God, Help of the weakest and the least, The poorest and most odd; While heavens through which Thou hast passed Acclaim the glory which Thou hast.
Before the years of testing Amid our world of sin, Where failure was around Thee, Perfection was within; Before the final trauma, Before the fight was won, Enamoured by Thy beauty God said, "Thou art my Son".
Thou didst come in displaying The glory men could know; As Man Thou wast expressing What God is, here below; Thy care in all Thy footsteps Was that His will be done; He was to Thee as Father, Thou wast to Him as Son.
We see the stars in heaven And view the sea and land, Acknowledging that all things Were founded by Thy hand; But Thou hast come in manhood To be God's holy One, And in His love and favour He owned Thee as "the Son".
